- This report documents the preliminary series of static and dynamic tests in Japan to measure the flexibility, frequency, and damping characteristics of a frame-wall structure and the associated analytical work conducted at U.C. Berkeley, as part of the U.S. -Japan Cooperative Research Program. The global flexibility, fundamental frequency and damping characteristics of the full-scale structure were simulated successfully. The bare model, prior to applying the auxiliary mass, which could be considered as a distorted model, had flexibility characteristics more than 100 percent different from those of the full-scale structure.
